Moving from Los Angeles to Dallas

Moving from Los Angeles to Dallas

Just as hundreds of people flock to Los Angeles every day, hundreds also move out of the City of Angels in search of a new home. In recent years, Dallas has become a popular alternative for those grown weary of L.A. In this short guide, we will take a look at some of the reasons people move to Dallas as well as the cons of living in this Texan city. And if you are moving from Los Angeles to Dallas with one or more vehicles, you’ll learn about the best way to ship them with peace of mind.

Why are Californians moving to Dallas?

Job market growth

In Dallas, job growth feels like a birthright. The continuous growth of the employment rate has been one of the main reasons people leave everything behind and move to this city. Over the last year, the job market in Dallas increased by 3.3%.

As more and more opportunities arise in the D-Town, more people who plan to relocate will realize that Dallas is one of the best places to build a new life. Government researchers project that within the next 10 years the demand will grow faster for information workers, as well as those working in scientific and technical services. The overall job growth is expected to be over 45%. This percentage is higher than the US average of 33.5%.

The power of food

Most likely, you have heard about food travelers. But have you heard about people who move permanently to a place that offers one of the best cuisines in the United States? We are not sure a term exists to describe anyone who relocates because of food. However, we suspect there are plenty of folks moving from Los Angeles to Dallas for this precise reason.

It does not mean that the LA cuisine is bad. It simply means some cities, like Dallas, offer unique cuisine that makes people wonder whether they should just wait until the next time to visit Texas for some scrumptious Tex-Mex creations and iconic BBQ or simply move there and enjoy it all anytime they wish.

Affordable cost of living

Besides its scenic views, great walking areas, and kid-friendly attractions, Dallas is also known for its affordable cost of living. While it is not home to Silicon Valley, the city offers more affordable living costs than Los Angeles, allowing you to save more. Salaries in Dallas are higher than the national average as well.

No state income tax

Since Texas is one of the nine states in the country where you pay no state income tax, once you move to Dallas, you will soon enjoy the feeling of keeping more of that paycheck to yourself. However, keep in mind that other taxes in Texas, such as real estate tax, are higher than the national average.

What are the cons of moving to Dallas?

We promised we would give some of the cons to moving to Dallas, but consider these drawbacks as things you should prepare for and not as something that should stop you from moving there and creating a family there. Dallas (and Texas, in general) is particularly family-friendly.

Less than stellar public transit system

The city of Dallas has expanded more horizontally than many other large cities across the nation. However, the public transit system leaves much to be desired, given the confusing routes to navigate. Lack of an adequate public transit system might be the reason why many of the city residents buy cars, thus contributing to traffic.

Traffic is just as bad as in L.A.

If you were hoping to move to Dallas to escape L.A. traffic jams forever, we are sorry to inform you that road congestion in Dallas can be pretty rough as well. Nevertheless, this should not stop you from moving there with your car. You can try and find your way around traffic by playing with your timing or mapping out different routes.

How to ship your car to Dallas?

The answer is simple: hire a professional auto shipping company that has proved its trustworthiness, has excellent online reviews, and offers realistic prices that reflect the most current market conditions. We would like to emphasize the importance of talking to companies and asking questions, before picking one to entrust with your car.

Corsia was highly recommended by a friend in the automobile industry. We needed to transport a cargo van from Seattle to Florida. We contacted Corsia who quickly arranged transport within just a few days. Communication was outstanding! Just a few email confirmations and we were all set. Mike was great and arrived right on time and delivered to Florida on schedule. Tip-avoid the hornets nest of auto brokers on line and just contact Corsia for a truly great experience!

Corsia has been amazing. Their prices are really competitive but more importantly their customer service has been 5-Star. Elena followed up with me every step of the way, making sure there was no miscommunication between me & the driver. We are using them to ship a 2nd vehicle & would not hesitate to use them again!

I have recently used Corsia for long time family car with sentimental value that was moved I have recently used Corsia for shipment of my vehicle from Oregon to Arizona by recommendation from other family member who also used Corsia in the past. I am very pleased on the service and the communication throughout shipment. Ken was my direct contact and kept me informed along the move The car was picked up and delivered as communicated. I did use a enclosed mover and the driver was also clean cut professional and treated car as his own. I would definitely recommend Corsia again with the experience I have had. Thank you. T

Corsia rep (Elena) was very proactive. Helped ship a car from CA to GA. She checked in with me via email quote and several phone calls to find me the best possible quote for the fastest available service. After several communications, Corsia was able to schedule a vehicle pickup the next day. The driver communicated well, and the vehicle arrived in final destination faster than we expected in perfect condition. I highly recommend using Corsia's reliable, efficient service.

Thanks, Corsia! Pickup was so clean, efficient, and wonderful -- my only recommendation is to make sure you schedule it during the day so you can fully review the car in the daylight. Drop off was equally wonderful, and the whole trip went down without a hitch (pun intended!). Seriously, Corsia delivered my Jeep from CT to California with no issues or bumps in the road!

Truly positive experience

Corsia Memphis to LA, mid-size SUV. I looked at 4 different companies amd Corsia was the most responsive of them. While being responsive, they were not unduly aggressive: when I indicated that I need to wait a month before making a decision they stopped contacting me and only came back with a reminder when I really needed it. Once I decided to engage Corsia they found me a transport within two days and the car was delivered (from Memphis to LA) in another two days. I had a truly positive experience.

Working with Corsia Logistics was a great experience. Working with Corsia Logistics was wonderful. They were able to find a driver right away to transport our car. They were in constant communication as to when the car was getting picked up and dropped off. The driver also communicated with me as to when he would arrive. I would highly recommend Corsia Logistics.

Excellent Organization

Corsia was an excellent company to work with while I transferred my car across the US. A friend of mine suggested I use them as they had been very organized and trustworthy with her own car. I researched a few different place but decided to go with Corsia and I'm so glad I did! Any questions I had throughout the process they answered quickly and clearly. I would definitely use them again in the future and recommend them for others to use.
